Scott Hargrove Recap From Night Before The 500

Scott Hargrove has narrowed the championship gap to only 3 points behind the leader after an astounding drive to a 2nd place finish in the first oval race of the season. Starting 6th on the grid in Saturday evening’s 90‐lap race on the 0.686‐mile Lucas Oil Raceway oval as part of the 69th Annual ‘Visit Hendricks County’ Night Before the Indianapolis 500, Hargrove advanced to 4th place fairly quickly where he settled in for the next 70 laps.

As the laps began to wind down, Hargrove was able to maintain his pace where the other leaders were slowing and then with a bold move passed 2 cars to take over second place on laps 83 and 84, and was closing rapidly on the leader when laps ran out. For advancing from 6th to 2nd, Scott was given the ‘Hard Charger Award’ and for his pass from 4th to 2nd he was given the ‘RePlay XD Move of the Race Award’.

Scott commented "Racing in May has been good to me! Out of the 5 races I competed in, I won 4 and finished 2nd in this most recent one. It was a great way to cap off the month and Cape Motorsports did a great job to get this Analytic Systems/Mazdaspeed car to the front despite a disappointing 6th place starting position. We worked really hard to develop our oval setup and to finish 2nd in the team’s first ever Pro Mazda oval race is phenomenal!"
